I once had an apricot tree in my backyard, as did all of my neighbors. We traded recipes around for how to use all the fruit that seemed to ripen all on one day. I found this one very useful, and it works for peaches too (as I found out after we planted a peach tree!)

Peach Nectar

Peel and cut up one quart of peaches. Add one quart of cold water. Boil for five minutes and cool briefly. Whirl it in the blender, adding one half cup sugar and one tablespoon lemon juice. Pour into glass containers. Nectar may also be frozen to enjoy at another time.

See the related article on stone fruit, which appeared in the Aug. 1 issue of the Almanac.
